Online pre-acceptance test Covid 19

The online pre-acceptance system enabling passengers to receive swabbing at Fiumicino airport, is available for all passengers arriving from Belgium, France, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Spain, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (after having stayed there or having transited through these countries the 14 days prior to arriving in Italy) and for all passengers departing on Covid-tested flights Alitalia Roma Fiumicino - Milano Linate  AZ2038 and AZ2092.

You can fill in the form online through the following link https://www.adr.it/form-preaccettazione, which can be accessed from your smartphone, tablet, pc, or via QR code:

 

 

 

 

 


After completing the registration process, you will receive a confirmation email with an identification number that you will need to show to the staff on-site.

Minors must fill out a paper form signed by their parent/guardian (departing passengers - arriving passengers) .

Passengers who have not had the opportunity to fill out the form online can fill out a paper form at the entrance to the Covid-19 testing area.

 

 

New procedure for 2 Alitalia Rome-Milan flights

As of 16 September, a new, even safer way to fly will commence on two flights to Milan Linate, operated by Alitalia (AZ 2038 at 13:30 and AZ 2092 at 17:30), only with passengers on board who have undergone a preventive screening with a negative result for Covid-19 (rapid antigen test or PCR molecular test).

For those who already have a certificate certifying negativity to one of these test, carried out within 72 hours before the flight, there is no change to the boarding procedure, which provides for the usual routes. Before boarding, a Ministry of Maritime, Air and Boarder Health (USMAF) doctor will check the validity of the certificate already held by passengers.

Passengers without a negativity certificate can undergo the rapid antigen test directly at the airport at the Covid-19 test area, at Terminal 3 arrivals, via a lane dedicated to these two Alitalia flights. Here, they will hand over the duly completed “Certification of Home Self-Isolation and Health Surveillance in the Event of a Positive Outcome” form to the registration operator. This form can be downloaded here. For passengers who do not have the form already completed, stations are available to fill it in. Once registration has been completed, the swab can be carried out.

The result of the swab will be read and communicated by the doctor after 30 minutes by calling the identification numbers of passengers who, whilst waiting for their result, are unable to leave the test area.

Passengers who, instead, want to undergo the rapid antigen test before the day of departure (however, in any case, within 72 hours of take-off) can go to the drive-in centre at the airport’s long stay carpark, which can be easily reached from the A91 Rome-Fiumicino motorway, by following the dedicated road signs. Access to the facility will be guaranteed by showing the flight booking.

If the report is NEGATIVE, passengers will receive a certificate of negativity and can proceed to board.

If the report is POSITIVE, passengers will need to follow the health protocols that will be communicated to them by the staff in charge.

 

 

Provisions and information for passengers

Measures are in accordance with the provisions of the Council Presidency on the coronavirus infection.

Passengers landing from one of these countries can also use their own car to go to the drive-in, park in the NCC (i.e. car rental with driver) car park next to the drive-in and access it through the pedestrian entrance.

Passengers not residing in the Lazio Region with flights to countries mandatorily requiring a pre-departure Covid-19 swab test, with a negative result.

 

•       If requested and if they are unable to obtain a prescription from their doctor, passengers not residing in the Lazio Region with a flight ticket can go to ADR's Emergency department at Fiumicino airport – located near Terminal 3 Arrivals– in order to be issued with a medical prescription on blank paper (no book-entry) for a molecular (PCR) test and will be directed to the authorised facility to undergo the test for a fee.

•       Passengers are advised to follow the procedure described above as far in advance as possible and, in any case, by the deadlines permitted by the provisions of the foreign countries of destination.

With reference to COVID-19 rapid antigen test, passengers not residing in the Lazio Region can contact the private facilities accredited by the Lazio Region.

 

 

 

According to the new COVID-19 containment measures provided for by the provisions of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, it is mandatory, throughout Italy, to always carry respiratory protective devices with you and to use then in enclosed places other than in private homes, including on public transport and in all outdoor places, except in cases in which the condition of isolation from non-cohabitants is continuously guaranteed.

N.B. Children under the age of six, people with pathologies or forms of disability that are not compatible with the continuous wearing of a mask and those who interact with the aforementioned people are not subject to this obligation.

The technical regulations on the aviation sector (APPENDIX 15 OF PRIME MINISTERIAL DECREE DATED 13/10/2020) require passengers to wear a surgical mask on plane, which must be replaced every 4 hours in the event that an exception to the 1-metre social distancing measure is permitted. The wearing of surgical masks on board is to be understood as a minimum requirement of the protective device. Passengers who do not have one can collect one from security checks

Movement measures

On 3rd November 2020, a new Prime Ministerial Decree (DPCM) was approved that provides for a series of limitations on the national territory. These vary from Region to Region and override the rules on travel to/from abroad defined in the previous Prime Ministerial Decree and in the Orders of the Minister of Health.

In Annex 20, the provisions of the Prime Ministerial Decree of 3rd November 2020, valid until 3rd December 2020, identify the lists of countries for which different limitations are prescribed.

LIST A - San Marino and Vatican City

No limitations

 

LIST B - Austria, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia, Denmark (including the Faroe Islands and Greenland), Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Poland, Portugal (including the Azores and Madeira), Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway (including Svalbard and Jan Mayen), Switzerland, Andorra, Principality of Monaco

Movement to and from the aforementioned territories is always allowed without any obligation to provide reasons (therefore also for tourism purposes). Persons who enter Italy from these States are no longer subject to the obligation of health surveillance and fiduciary isolation (quarantine) for 14 days, unless they have stayed in different countries during the 14 days prior to entering Italy (Lists D, E, F).

The obligation remains to fill in the self-declaration for entry into Italy from abroad.

 

LIST C - Belgium, France (including Guadeloupe, Martinique, Guyana, Réunion, Mayotte and excluding other territories located outside the European continent), the Netherlands (excluding territories located outside the European continent), the Czech Republic, Spain (including territories on the African continent), Great Britain and Northern Ireland (including the Channel Islands, Gibraltar, the Isle of Man and British bases on the island of Cyprus and excluding territories outside the European continent).

Movement to and from these territories is permitted without any obligation to provide reasons. However, the following alternative prevention measures apply to persons who enter Italy and who have stayed or transited through these territories in the previous fourteen days:

a) the obligation to present the carrier, upon boarding, with the certificate of having undergone, within 72 hours prior to entering Italy, a molecular or antigen test, performed by swab and with a negative result;

b) the obligation to undergo a molecular or antigen test, to be performed by swab, on arrival at the airport. At the airport, the swab test can be carried out in the Arrivals area of Terminal 3 (within the time slot from 9.00 am to 6.00 pm, as established by the Lazio Region), or at the Lazio Region drive-in set up at the airport’s Long Stay car park, accessible by free shuttle service open 24 hours a day. It can otherwise be carried out within 48 hours of entering Italy at the relevant local health company.

The obligation remains to fill in the self-declaration for entry into Italy from abroad and to immediately notify the Prevention Department of the health company responsible for the territory of your entry.

The procedure involves communicating your return to the Lazio Region’s toll-free number (+39 800.118.800) or through the ‘Lazio Doctor Covid’ app and going to the drive-in with your health card, travel documents and preferably with your doctor's prescription. Drive-ins are open every day from 9 am to 6 pm, except on Sundays (the San Giovanni drive-in is also open on Sundays). The test is free.
